Go figure!

Last weekend, for the first time in my life, I saw a condom-vending machine in a public place in India.

Where, do I hear you ask?

In the ladies' toilet of Rex Theatre, Bangalore, which is one of the oldest in the city!

Either they are more forward than the multiplexes, or I've just been walking around with my eyes closed.

Go figure!

This proves that Rex theatre management along with most of India 'rightly' think that its the responsibility of women to NOT get pregnant or pass on STDs. :D
But then ofcourse I do not know if they have one in the guys restroom. Can you please let me know if you ever find out...

I haven't been to Rex in years and years...but I wonder if the ladies toilet was once upon a time the gents toilet.

Wow. India has certainly changed since I was there last!

Oh hi. Wandered onto your page from some place else.

Lol @ one who nets the dot. Very true that. Or maybe they have a machine in both rooms hoping that the women will be more responsible in case the guy is not?

OneWhoNetsTheDot: Not being a male, I can't exactly find that out...maybe you would like to venture there one day and unearth the secret :-)

Roshan: Good guess!

Penny Lane: I know, I must get back to bloglife...hopefully soon...and I'm glad you're back, by the way!

Bharath: Hello...and you're right, maybe that IS what they hope!!
